To understand one’s life there has to be an understanding of love. Without this understanding one still exist, but there is struggle because if one doesn’t conquer their own mind they are at the mercy of it’s conditioning.
It is they that conquer themselves, that conquer the world. It isn’t the mysteries of the Universe that reveal life’s secrets, it is the understanding of one’s own mind and why one does the things that they do, this is what uncovers the greatest mystery known to mankind; one’s own mind. What good is it if you know all about the Universe, but you don’t know why you think, say, do and feel the way that you do. And if you don’t know that, you will never truly be at peace because you will be at the mercy of the Conditioned Mind.
It is imperative to understand our own conditioning if we are to ever truly understand our life. Trying to understand the meaning of life drives people mad because there are to many unknowns that the mind will never grasp. But understanding just one life, our own, is something that anyone can do. It is not such a mystery to gain mastery over our behavior, but it will take vigilance for this to occur. When you behave in a loving way, you become that love.
The less one is conditioned, the less one is conditioned. It is not the mind that we really learn to control, it is our conditioning that we need to become aware of. It is our conditioning that dictates our behavior. If our conditioning is based in love, then we will be loving. If it isn’t there will be a need to quiet oneself so one can do what’s needed for this to occur. We do this because when we are still, we understand that to love is the intention of our life, because without it there is no life. There is existence, but that doesn’t equate to life. To live, there must be love. To be complete, one has to be completed by love. Our completeness in in direct relation to the love that is in our heart. A little love equates to one’s struggle. Our struggle with life is in trying to understand love, not the great mysteries of the Universe. Complete love equates to a complete life. Understand this and you will understand that it is only through love that one will ever be complete.
